I you are catching that early flight then there are very few options in Darwin and the Rydges is the most convenient. This is a typical transit hotel with a high turnover o clients. Staff are courteous, the rooms clean and that's about it except the price! You pay through the nose for the ability to walk to the airport

Checked in late in the evening, location is close to airport and free shuttle was quick to arrive. Driver was disappointing, had been asked to be careful of a fragile bag. Ignored and dumped a heavy bag on top, causing minor damage. Hotel staff are fine, but could be a little more friendly. Smile never hurts. Return driver (different) next... More

It was clean and very close to airport - right next door. But it was over priced and staff weren't overly helpful. For me cleanliness is the most important thing. We stayed for just 4 hours in between flights. Shuttle comes to get you if you call but an easy stroll too.

The Darwin Airport Hotel is a great hotel, located at the Darwin Airport. Unlike other airport hotels it I does not charge premium rates but offers room a better rates than downtown Darwin. The rooms are a good style, with all you need. If you have a car everything is within a ten minute drive, beaches, malls, downtown CBD night... More

I travel to Darwin to conduct business on the islands and this hotel is a few minutes walk from the airport. The reception staff are friendly and efficient and the rooms, whilst not 5 Star, are adequately furnished and fitted. The pool area is attractive and there is a poolside bar. On my last visit, a few days ago, it... More

Expensive for what it ts and object to being told I need to leave not only my credit card details but a $100 holding fee as well.

We had stayed at the Best Western for mor money. The room here was nicer, and the overall setup was better with restaurants to chose from and the resort next door. The staff were friendly and helpful, giving me meaningful options of what to do.

We arrived at 1.30 am and needed a late checkout to gain some sleep before exploring Darwin. The room was ready with the aircon running, large and spacious overlooking the large pool. Great staff, great rooms, great rates and late checkout

This is the second time I have stayed at this airport. I can't help but be disappointed when you go to the fridge and find nothing in it I do prefer a proper bar fridge, as most times you don't want to have to leave your room to go an get a drink or a snack. I am also disappointed... More

Thank you for the review, the reason behind not having the minibars in the rooms is we can offer a much larger variety of items at our hotel lobby shop than what we could with an in-room mini bar. We have taken the comments on-board regarding the overnight food options and are currently reviewing. Thanks again for the review and... More
